Make the most of an empty corner with a collection of carefully selected pieces…

“Anchored by a French-looking display table with a marble top and a dull gold full-length arched mirror, I was keen to create a muted, casual yet neutral tablescape for an empty corner of this home,” says uMhlanga interior designer Lisa Walters-Hunter.
Lisa achieved her desired look by using various materials and considered the following pointers:
On the table-top Lisa looked for smooth ceramics, natural clay-looking ceramics, aged-looking vessels, earthy ceramics with a textured or rough feel, organically shaped ceramic objets, stacked coffee table books, a large pale amber-coloured glass lamp base with raffia lampshade, plus other items of interest.
“To add the finishing touches I added olive branches and bougainvillea cut from the garden and placed in selected urns. This immediately created a relaxed yet chic and Mediterranean feel.
“Personally, I love using mirrors extensively in my interiors. They create another ‘window’ and reflection of the room which I find so interesting. For a dark room they also reflect much-needed light,” concluded Lisa.
